DAKOTA R/T

THE DAKOTA R/T WAS FIRST INTRODUCED IN 1998. IT IMMEDIATLY BECAME SPORT TRUCK OF THE YEAR BY SPORT TRUCK MAGAZINE. THE R/T IS OUTFITTED WITH A 5.9L MAGNUM ENGINE WITH 250HP AND 345FT/LBS OF TOURQUE BACKED UP BY A 4 SPEED AUTO MATIC TRANSMISSION. ALSO, STANDARD ON THE R/T CAME 17" 5 SPOKE ALUMINUM RIMS WRAPPED WITH 255/55HR-17 GOODYEAR EAGLE RSA'S, AND A 1" LOWERED SUSPENSION FROM THE FACTORY. THE R/T IS STIL IN PRODUCTOIN TODAY BUT THE POPULARITY HAS MADE DODGE MAKE MORE R/T'S AND ALSO SPREAD THE R/T NAME THROUGH THEIR OTHER VEHICLES INCLUDING THE CARAVAN, INTREPID,AND THE STRATUS.

PERFORMANCE OF THE R/T

THE R/T'S PERFORMANCE IS NO WHERE NEAR THAT OF A SPORTS CAR BUT IT IS MUCH BETTER THAN ANY OTHER N/A TRUCK ON THE MARKET. FROM THE FACTORY THE R/T WEIGHS IN AT 4320LBS ( CLUB CAB ). IT WILL GET DOWN THE 1/4 MILE IN 15.2 - 15.4 SECONDS. NOT TOO BAD FOR A STOCK TRUCK.IT PULLS .87G ON THE SKIDPAD. THE ONLY DOWNFALL OF THE TRUCK THAT I SEE IS THE MPG. IT GETS 16MPG ON THE HIGHWAY AND 12MPG AROUND TOWN.CURRENTLY, THE CLOSEST N/A ( NATRUALLY ASPIRATED ) TRUCK TO THIS IS THE CHEVY 1500 WITH THE 5.3L WHICH IS A 16.6 - 17.0 1/4 MILE AND THE FORD F-150 WITH THE 5.4L COMING IN AT 16.2 - 16.6 1/4 MILE. THE TOP SPEED OF THE R/T IS LIMITED TO 113MPH WHICH IS CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN CHEVY WHICH IS 97MPH, BUT IS EASILY REMOVED WITH THE MOPAR PCM.


LIMITED PRODUCTION

DODGE HAS NOW BEEN MAKING MORE R/T'S DUE TO IT'S POPULARITY, BUT IN 1998, AND 1999 THERE WERE VERY FEW R/T'S PRODUCED. IN 1998 THERE WAS A TOTAL OF 1434 R/T'S PRODUCED WITH 6281 BEING PRODUCED IN 1999. ONLY 1392 BLACK CC'S. NO CONCRETE NUMBERS YET ON THE 2000'S BUT WILL POST AS SOON AS I KNOW.
